What makes this tour special

When the sun sets, the monuments and memorials of Washington DC are illuminated, and during the holidays, the magic of the season lights the sky and warms the night air. Experience the capitall as you never have before on your private walking tour of the nation's Christmas lights. On your tour, you will:

Washington DC is inspiring year round, but when the holiday lights are strung a new magic hangs in the crisp, winter air - a collective joy overtakes residents and visitors alike. It's simply the most wonderful time of the year to be out and about in DC. On your private walking tour, your guide will not only show you the spectacular lights on display throughout the national mall, but will also share with you the history of Christmas in DC, which spans further back than the tradition of the National Christmas Tree, which began in 1923. 

While your holiday walking tour will be filled with stories which remind us of the magic of the season, your guide will also be sharing the stories of the monuments, the history of the city and how it came to be, and is there to tailor your tour in any direction which your curiosity may arouse. We invite you to join in the spectacular fashion with which the city lights up in celebration each year, while enjoying a private tour made just for you this wonderful season. 

Please note: This tour does not run after December 23rd.
